Openwave and McAfee extend mobile anti-virus security solution
Posted on 16-Feb-2005 18:56 | Tags Filed under: News



Openwave Systems Inc. and McAfee, Inc. intend to collaborate on a framework to help mobile operators secure their networks and protect the experience of their mobile subscribers. The two companies will enable operators to provide an anti-virus offering to mobile subscribers across the messaging and data services, as one of the first steps in offering a secure content management solution.

Openwave and McAfee intend to deliver an anti-virus engine designed specifically for the mobile environment. This ensures that core mobile service requirements are met, while also providing an enhanced value of virus protection for downloads, messaging and other applications. McAfee continues to work with market leaders to develop solutions and products to protect both consumer and enterprise users from potential malicious applications and viral threats brought on by the growth of wireless and mobile communication platforms. The companies have worked together over the past few years to help secure some of the world's largest networks, and have recently engaged in software compatibility testing and joint sales initiatives.
